The New Ghost

By Robert Hunter
Illustrated by Robert Hunter

Robert Hunter’s first comic for Nobrow Press took TCAF by storm, selling out on the first day of the event! The book is a beautiful, poetic story that is surprising in its adeptness for the medium of graphic storytelling, considering it is Robert Hunt

Robert Hunter and Nobrow Press introduce The New Ghost, a beautifully rendered, literally haunting tale of the afterlife intersecting with the everyday and the hidden secrets of the night sky. A stunning solo debut into the world of graphic narrative, Hunter’s entry into Nobrow’s 17×23 series impressed widely at its debut at Toronto Comic Arts Festival. As leading Canadian arts blog Squidface & The Meddler put it: “Rob Hunter’s art runs against many of the strong currents in the world of comics…how often do you come across a comic that’s light as air, dreamy and poetic?”.
